Geek: GE/IT$
I'm a geek of engineering.
   a geek of Information Technology.
    I'm making money at this.
Dress: d-(+)

I'm as round as an average geek.
Age: a++
I'm between 50 and 59.
Computers: C++(++++)$
    I range from ...
Computers are a large part of my existence. When I get up in the morning, the first thing I do is log myself in. I play games or mud on weekends, but still manage to stay off of academic probation.
    ... to ...
I'll be the first in line to get the new cybernetic interface installed into my skull.
    I'm making money at this.
Unix: UBVL++(++++)$
I have a unix account to do my stuff in.
I have a unix account to do my stuff in.
    I range from ...
I've got the entire admin ticked off at me because I am always using all of the CPU time and trying to run programs that I don't have access to. I'm going to try cracking /etc/passwd next week, just don't tell anyone.
    ... to ...
I am the sysadmin. If you try and crack my machine, don't be surprised if the municipal works department gets an "accidental" computer-generated order to start a new landfill on your front lawn or your quota is reduced to 4K.
    I'm making money at this.
Perl: P+++
Perl is a very powerful programming tool. Not only do I no longer write shell scripts, I also no longer use awk or sed. I use Perl for all programs of less than a thousand lines.
Linux: L+++$
I use Linux exclusively on my system. I monitor comp.os.linux.* and even answer questions some times.
    I'm making money at this.
Emacs: E++
I know and use elisp regularly!
Web: W++(-)
    I range from ...
I have a homepage. I surf daily. My homepage is advertised in my .signature.
    ... to ...
The web is really a pain. Life was so much easier when you could transfer information by simple ASCII. Now everyone won't even consider your ideas unless you spif them up with bandwidth-consuming pictures and pointless information links.
Usenet: N+
I read news recreationally when I have some time to kill.
Usenet Oracle: o--
Who needs answers from a bunch of geeks anyhow?

I like Kibo.
Windows: !w(+)
    I range from ...
I don't use Windows.
    ... to ...
I have installed my own custom sounds, wallpaper, and screen savers so my PC walks and talks like a fun house. Oh yeah, I have a hundred TrueType(tm) fonts that I've installed but never used. I never lose Minesweeper and Solitaire.
OS/2: O
I finally managed to get OS/2 installed but wasn't too terribly impressed.
Macintosh: M@
I use a mac, but I'm pretty indifferent about it.
    Varying wildly on this topic.
I've used VMS.
Politics-Social: PS+
My whole concept of liberalism is that nobody has the right to tell anybody else what to do, on either side of the political fence. If you don't like it, turn the bloody channel.
Politics-Economic: PE++(-)
    I range from ...
Keep the government off the backs of businesses. Deregulate as much as possible.
    ... to ...
It's ok to increase government spending, so we can help more poor people. Tax the rich! Cut the defense budget!
Cypherpunks: Y+
I have an interest and concern in privacy issues, but in reality I am not really all that active or vocal.
PGP: PGP+(++)
    I range from ...
"Finger me for my public key"

It's just another TV show.

    ... to ...
I consume a few books a week as part of a staple diet.
Dilbert: DI
I read Dilbert infrequently, rarely understanding it
DOOM!: D++
I've played the shareware version and bought the real one and I'm actually pretty good at the game. I occasionally download PWAD files and play them too.
Geek Code: G+(-)
    I range from ...
I was once G++ (or higher), but the new versions are getting too long and too complicated.
    ... to ...
What a tremendous waste of time this Geek Code is.
Education: e+++
Got a masters degree
Housing: h----
Married with children -- Al Bundy can sympathize.
Relationships: r+++
Found someone, dated, and am now married.
Sex[m]: y++++
I have a few little rug rats to prove I've been there. Besides, with kids around, who has time for sex?
